Blueberry Protein Pancakes are a great way for adding more protein into your diet. They’re perfect as a meal or snack, especially after a workout. Keeping it healthy, you can serve with almond butter and sugar-free maple syrup, although they are delicious plain. The fresh blueberries, banana, and splash of cinnamon make these pancakes taste amazing.
I love a quick meal. Easy to make, easier to eat, these Blueberry Protein Pancakes are great.
I make them in a 2-cup measuring cup so that they’re easy to pour, then there’s little to clean-up afterwards. Nice.
Another bonus is that they hold their heat longer than traditional buttermilk pancakes. I really like that.
Making Blueberry Protein Pancakes
Start by mashing the 1/2 banana directly in a small bowl or 2-cup measuring cup. Add in the egg, protein powder, baking soda, and cinnamon.
I use Orgain Organic Protein Powder, which I buy from Costco. If you go to Orgain’s website, you can even buy Pumpkin Spice and other great flavors.
Even though I usually buy vanilla, I know chocolate has to taste delicious with the banana and blueberries. Let me know if you try a different flavor.
Anyways, stir this mixture up good and think about how it’s going to pour out.
If you think it’s too thick to pour easily, add just a little water to the batter, maybe a teaspoon or two at a time. Mix it in and check again.
If you add too much water, it will be runny and won’t hold together to make pancakes. So, go slow when adding the water. Thicker is better than thinner.
Once you have a good consistency, gently fold in the blueberries.
Cooking Blueberry Protein Pancakes
You definitely want to use cooking spray on your pan for these, even if the pan is non-stick. They’ll stick.
I forgot one time and it was so messy! They tasted great, but looked terrible.
OK, so, spray the pan first, then pour 3 – 4 small pancakes. I break them down to 3 – 4 so they’re easier to turn over.
With a spatula, lift an edge and check for color. They turn a darker brown than regular pancakes, so don’t think they’re burnt.
Once a nice brown color, flip them over. Check the color again, then they’re done.

Blueberry Protein Pancakes
Breakfast is a meal I could eat any time of the day, which is why I love this recipe.
It’s quick and easy, needs only a few ingredients, and they taste delicious right out of the pan.
I have tried it with almond butter, which is scrumptious with these, and also syrup. If you’re keeping it healthy, there are some really good sugar-free syrups out there.
